in the chinese military, that you won't trade los angeles for tai pei this is a central role of the kind of limited missile defenses that are practical. as to why -- i don't know how many reams of good will and paper have been spent on trying to convince the russians that we would like nothing better than to do things which really no kidding cross our hearts, hope to die, that unsurprisingly, maybe a few hundred american intercepter missiles will not defeat thousands of russian ones and they usually get variation on no or no followed by colorful adjectives but maybe they'll change. >> general cartright, to follow on curt's point about demonstrating the capacity and political will of the alliance to deal with challenges of today and tomorrow, you talked about the mobility, the mobility of allied forces. i have a sense that that ability may be demonstrated for expeditionary operations but i wonder if the alliance is probably configured today and positioned today to deal with fast breaking regional contingencies on the border, be it poland, be it turkey? am i underestimating nato's capacity

legalized and taxed, would it -- >> could you state your name, please? >> sorry, michael jabra, i'm from los angeles. and if drugs were legalized and taxed, would it damage organized crime by taking away some of their revenue and allowing law enforcement to go after other crimes such as human smuggling and international property theft? >> well, certainly, it would change the pecuniary status situation there. there's been a mixed message sent for places where drugs have been legalized. in canada, there is medical marijuana that's permitted and the canadians say that organized crime is taking advantage of the fact that there is medical marijuana permitted and they are setting up grow facilities and things like that. in the netherlands, there's been a substantial loosening of drug issues there, but the interesting thing is, it has brought in a lot more illegal drugs in the netherlands since they've had certain legalized marijuana to the point that starting this year, the netherlands prohibits any foreigner from going into their pot shops. the czechs have legalized a significant amount of drugs
